value with the date and time.

#1 Post by Dondolo » 18 Jan 2020, 21:27

I want to send a value with a timestamp. I use sendtohttp and mqqt for this.

When I use the system variables "%lcltime% or %lcltime_am% only the date comes but not the time.

What am I doing wrong?

SendToHTTP 192.xxx.xxx.xx,80,control?cmd=event,Time=%lcltime_am%
Publish %sysname%/Wassermeldung,Wasser
Publish %sysname%/Wlanstärke,%rssi%
Publish %sysname%/Zeitstempel,%lcltime_am%

Maybe the space between date and time is being interpreted as a parsing character. So try wrapping the var parameter with single quotes. Like this:

Code: Select all

Publish %sysname%/Zeitstempel,'%lcltime_am%'

You can also take it a stage further and publish it as a json string.
That means you could pack a number of data-items in the string.
Here's an example from one of my rule-sets.

Publish,node24/ir_detector,'{"ssid":"%ssid%","node_number":"node%unit%"}'

Notice the placing of the single quote marks around the json string.
